''Everyone Says I Love You'' is a 1996 musical comedy written and directed by Creator/WoodyAllen and starring a large EnsembleCast.

Like a lot of Woody Allen movies, the film is set in [[BigAppleSauce New York]] and features LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters. This particular film distinguishes itself by having the characters randomly break into song. The musical numbers, and the entire tone of the film are a ShoutOut to the musicals of the 1920s and 1930s.

!!Examples
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Schuyler dumps Holden to hook up with Charles.
* AllStarCast: Creator/WoodyAllen, JuliaRoberts, [[Series/{{MASH}} Alan Alda]], NataliePortman, Goldie Hawn, Creator/EdwardNorton, Creator/DrewBarrymore and TimRoth. As well as [[RetroactiveRecognition then-unknown actors]] [[Film/AlmostFamous Billy Crudup]] and [[AmericanPie Natasha Lyonne]].
* AmicableExes: Joe and Steffie. Helped by Joe getting along well with Bob.
* ArcWords: The song "I'm Through With Love" is repeated by every character, leading up to the climactic dance between Steffie and Joe by the Seine. Ends up being a BrickJoke when DJ's umpteenth love interest ''gangsta raps it on stage''.
* AuthorAvatar: Writer/director Creator/WoodyAllen as Joe
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Von breaks up with Joe because he's ''too'' perfect for her, not knowing that Joe was privvy to all of her deepest secrets and desires.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: As TheNarrator, DJ does this often.
-->'''DJ''': We're not the typical family from a musical comedy.
** When Bob starts singing "I'm Through With Love" when Schuyler reveals she dumped Holden, Steffie quizzically asks, "What are ''you'' singing about? You're not in love with Holden!"
* TheCastShowoff: Averted mostly, as the only members of the main cast with musical experience were Alan Alda and Goldie Hawn. Creator/WoodyAllen had to instruct Hawn and Creator/EdwardNorton to sound worse when they sang, not wanting the main cast to sound like professional singers.
** Applies to the dancing in the film too- while the dancers in the 'My Baby Just Cares for Me' scene dance like professionals, Creator/EdwardNorton's dancing is deliberately clumsy and awkward in comparison.
** Drew Barrymore flatly refused to sing, which is why she is the only cast member who is dubbed. A pity, as MusicAndLyrics later proved she was as good a singer as other cast members.
* CityOfCanals: Joe and DJ holiday in Venice.
* CloudCuckooLander: Grandpa.
* TheDeadCanDance: See TheFunInFuneral trope below.
* TheFunInFuneral: Grandpa's funeral turns into a musical performance of Guy Lombardo's 'Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)', complete with dancing ghosts.
* GayParee: Joe lives in Paris for most of the year, and the Dandridges are vacationing there at the end of the film.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Lane and Laura compete for the attentions of the same boy.
* HappilyMarried: Bob and Steffie.
* IronicEcho: Holden's melancholy rendition of 'I'm Through With Love' after Schuyler leaves him being swiftly followed by a rapper performing at a concert DJ's attending.
--->'''Rapper''': Yo check it I'm through with love / I'm through with all you [[PrecisionFStrike muthafuckas]]
* {{Jerkass}}: After hooking up with Schuyler, Charles proceeds to dump her in a forest in upstate New York in the midst of a planned robbery heist. Understandably, Schuyler [[FirstGirlWins goes back to Holden and says 'yes' when he proposes to her again]].
* KavorkaMan: [[Creator/WoodyAllen Joe]]
* TheMatchmaker: DJ goes to great lengths to fix her father up with Von, giving him advice (courtesy of listening in on Von's therapy sessions) and encouragement.
* MayDecemberRomance: Joe and Von.
* NiceGuy: Holden, portrayed by Creator/EdwardNorton PlayingAgainstType.
* NuclearFamily: The Dandridges are a blended version of this.
* ReallyGetsAround: DJ runs through men like Kleenex, it seems.
* RunawayFiance: Subverted- Schuyler leaves Holden for [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Charles Ferry]] but then has a change of heart and decides to return to Holden.
* SceneryPorn: The film was shot in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, UsefulNotes/{{Paris}}, and UsefulNotes/{{Venice}}.
* ShoutOut- One of the final musical numbers in the film is [[Theatre/AnimalCrackers "Hooray for Captain Spaulding"]], and is sung [[BilingualBonus (in French)]] by the ensemble cast wearing [[TheMarxBrothers Groucho Marx glasses and moustaches]]
** The title of the film is a nod to another film starring TheMarxBrothers, ''HorseFeathers''.
** DJ's perfect man? [[BrickJoke Harpo]].
* ShowWithinAShow: Implied by DJ at the end that the entire movie is a musical. She states she was told that if it were made into a movie, no one would believe the incredible coincidences unless it was a musical.
* SpontaneousChoreography: Everywhere in this film!
* StalkerWithACrush: Joe's courtship of Von, in large part thanks to his daughters knowledge of Von's inner thoughts.
* StrawmanPolitical: Scott Dandridge is the conservative version of this, [[spoiler: at least until he has heart surgery and wakes up a liberal, much to Bob's joy. Scott's conservatism is {{handwaved}} as being down to [[TakeThat not enough oxygen getting to his brain]].]]
** Steffie's "limousine liberalism" is also very much a political stereotype. Lampshaded when she says to Schuyler that Charles Ferry is fine to treat as just a "social project" but not as an ''actual human being''.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Frieda, Grandpa's nurse, is ''heavily'' implied to have worked under AdolfHitler.
-->'''Bob:''' Frieda, this pasta doesn't have any sauce.
-->'''Frieda:''' It's ''Bavarian'' pasta, it doesn't need sauce. The Italians need sauce. The Italians were weak!
* TitleDrop: "Everyone Says I Love You" is the final song of the film.
* WackyMarriageProposal: Both times Holden proposes to Schuyler, and both manage to [[GoneHorriblyWrong Go Horribly Wrong]].
** For the first proposal, Holden hides the ring in Schuyler's dessert, and she ends up swallowing it.
** The second involves him hiding it in a box of candy with virtually the same results.
* WithThisRing: Of the 'hide it in a dessert at a romantic dinner' variety. See WackyMarriageProposal.
